Photographer's Note

Another picture from the Jad-e Maiwand in 1972. This street, running through the old part of Kabul, was the main business hub before the wars. In the 1990's, during the civil war between the Mujahideen groups that had defeated the Soviet army, most of this street was destroyed.
But in the early 70's it was the most exciting part of the city, performing an endlessly fascinating spectacle of life for a young traveller like me.

This was scanned from an Agfa Color slide.
